Fridays R 4 Fun

I'm heading to visit my grandkids and was looking for a craft I could do with them. I thought it would be cool to make something that we could use to decorate with. So I looked online for wreath ideas. Some of these are really cool. Not just for the holidays, but for all occasions.

 This one is kind of cute, but I think I'd like it better with the bells in different color. The cool thing is,it could be used if your doorbell stops working.
I thought this one is really cute. I like that you don't have to destroy one of the kid's toys to get the parts to use. Aren't the glove antlers a scary sort of way.

I really like this one. You use all different sizes and colors of ornaments. I'd probably shove in a candy cane or two.
Now this is a lot of spiced gum drops. I don't know if I could buy them just for the use in a craft. This is way too much temptation for me

 I think this one is my favorite. I really love those buttons.

this would be cool to have any time of year. what a great way to display your address.

 And this one is just plain fun, making a wreath out of whatever your hobby or interest is. I wonder if I could find a small typewriter and mount it on a wreath...or maybe I could find some small books to make one with. Hmm...
I added this one for my friend, Maria Toth. Hey Maria, maybe you could add a picture of you novel, Butterfly Hollow, to it!

When I was a child, my Mom got styrofoam fruit shapes at the Ben Franklin (aka craft store!) and sequins, and tiny pins. She covered the foam shapes with the sequins and the result was a gorgeous fruit basket for our centerpiece. I'm betting a sequined wreath would be awesome! Of course, I'm leaving out the part about what happens when rowdy kids accidentally spill sequins all over the carpet! ;) Have fun with your angels, my friend!

That's a really good idea! When I get to town, I'll stop in JoAnn's and Michael's to see what the have. Thanks!
